It's the best Halloween treat ever—a collection of three Berenstain Bears Halloween books in one! Included are The Berenstain Bears Trick or Treat, The Berenstain Bears and the Ghost of the Forest, and The Berenstain Bears and the Prize Pumpkin, sweet and spooky tales that are the perfect ingredients for a whole lot of Halloween reading fun!
More than 50 years ago, Random House published the first of more than 300 books about the Berenstain Bears. Many of the most enduring titles are First Time Books®, which explore the myriad of issues that are part of family life and growing up, among them sibling rivalry, parent-child relationships, school, friendships and the lasting values that are the bedrock of family and community life.
Brother and Sister learn that their new puppy requires a lot of attention. Yet they find that the work is well worth it when they consider all the love and affection they receive from their wonderful pet.
Mother’s Day is coming, and Mama Bear knows that Papa and the cubs are going to surprise her. She also knows that Mother’s Day in the tree house is going to be one big, messy success that she’ll have to clean up. But maybe, just maybe, Papa and the cubs have cooked up a really big surprise for Mama this year! Featuring greeting card gatefold.
“Father’s Day is nothing but a greeting card holiday,” is what Papa says. If that’s the way Papa feels, then his family just won’t celebrate this year. But, as the big day rolls around, and there’s no card, no gift and no breakfast in bed, Papa’s spirits sink lower and lower. That’s when the cubs spring on him their wonderful Papa’s Day surprise!
It’s report card day at Bear County School --- a day Brother Bear has been dreading. He’s received horrible marks in all of his classes, except gym. If only his grades were based on how many strike-outs he’s pitched or soccer balls he’s stopped and not on fractions and vocabulary.
What fun! What excitement! What a nuisance. At least that's the way Sister Bear feels. If it isn't being fed, burped, or diapered, it's being dandled, cuddled or kitchy-kitchy-kooed. Yes, Sister's pretty fed up with the fuss everyone's making over the new baby. Even the dolls make her angry, because they remind her of the baby. Then Sister gets a special homework assignment and, with a little help from wise old Mama, comes to believe that this new baby might just be a nifty addition to the Bear clan.
